Customer Testimonials


"Thanks so much for the beautiful flowers for my wedding.  They turned out amazing.  Sammy is so good at what she does.  I told her colors and she right away started naming flowers to fit with the colors for my wedding.  Super easy to work with."

"We booked River Valley Designs for our October wedding. From consult to set up, Sammy was a professional through and through, and her work shows it. I described to her my vision of how I wanted our flowers to look and she captured it perfectly! Sammy arrived early to set up all our table arrangements and to bring us the wedding party flowers. When she brought in our bouquets, I was absolutely tickled with how they turned out! I could not stop staring at them- they were gorgeous! The fresh flowers were so perfect, they looked unreal! We got so many ooh's and ahh's over our wedding flowers. Everytime I look at our wedding pictures, I can't help but say, 'just LOOK at those flowers!!' I would recommend Sammy and her crew to any bride looking to make her wedding wishes come true! "

"I thought picking the perfect flowers for my wedding would be the most difficult task of all; but working with Sammy at River Valley Designs made that thought quickly go out the window. I had no idea where to start, so she just started throwing out ideas, which were amazing to say the least! I told her my colors and she quickly designed the perfect bouquet for me, as well as for my bridesmaids and table decor! I still get compliments on how beautiful my flowers and decorations were and I tell them I can't take credit because it was all River Valley Designs. I have had 4 ladies planning weddings ask who I went to for my flowers since June 2014, and have reached out numerous times to friends I know that are getting married and recommend River Valley Designs to every single one of them! River Valley made my life as a bride so much easier! We weren't treated like a client, we were treated like family."

"I highly recommend River Valley Designs to anyone, for any occasion. It is sure to be a fun experience with amazing results! After looking at a few options for my wedding reception (I was married out of the country) I couldn't have been happier with choosing Samantha Ritchie and River Valley Designs. It was such a fun experience sitting down and coming up with ideas and the best options for what I was imagining. Sammy was able to turn my ideas into a beautiful reality. The professionalism and expertise by her and the staff at River Valley Designs was spectacular. When there was an issue with ordering, Sammy was able to come up with new ideas immediately and show me other examples that I ultimately ended up choosing because of how unique, fun, and gorgeous it made the arrangements. The open communication throughout the whole process made it very easy for me and the pricing made it very easy for my budget! She hit below my target for budget and beyond my imagination for my reception and flowers!"
